ZeissWide Angle ZM lenses from Carl Zeiss : Announced at Photokina 2006, Carl Zeiss AG has released the pricing and the official launch date for the Distagon T* 4/18 ZM and C Biogon T* 4.5/21 ZM lenses. Tailor-made for the Zeiss Ikon rangefinder camera and other cameras with Leica M-bayonet, both lenses are based on sophisticated optical designs from Carl Zeiss and provide high image definition in high purity colors - without flare and ghosting. They cover the full 24x36mm format and are suitable for both analog and digital photography. Even with digital sensors in a smaller format, they still cover very wide field angles. Both lenses are remarkably compact and light and are therefore ideal for travel, landscape and ‘street’ photography.

Like all lenses in the ZEISS ZM-line, they feature a durable, full metal precision mount and engraved scales. The 10-blade iris has precise stops in 1/3 steps. Optionally, the lenses are available with a black or silver finish. External viewfinders and lens shades are available for both lenses as an option. Both ZM-lenses are available in silver & black finishes. The Distagon T* 4/18 ZM will begin shipping in August, 2007, the C Biogon T* 4.5/21 ZM in June, 2007.
